    Lyrics

    In the nicotine glare of a cold naked light
    I drag my body from the covers and down forty flights
    I run out the front door into the center of the street
    I scream out your name as the steam just swells around my feet

    I hear you after midnight from the inner city
    As every little Cinderella turns to drop dead pretty
    We were built out of the darkness into this West Side Story
    We came together in the shadows but the moon just steals our glory

    Well, this is my battleground, baby
    This is my plaything
    The only thing I've ever known
    Outside of a wedding ring

    And I swear I heard the night talking
    Cursing me for being a little more than hopeless
    Telling me we're running lonely, loose and broken
    Stronger now on passion but haven't we really spoken
    And all we ever do, is listen to the night talking

    On the burden of insanity, we can't find the cause
    On a flatbed truck, well, the home girl, she paints her claws
    There's a coward who gets his courage under cover of the dark
    And it's a strange breed of the devil,
    freeze at night to go walking in the park

    This is my battleground, baby
    This is my plaything
    The only thing I've ever known
    Outside of a wedding ring

    And I swear I heard the night talking
    Cursing me for being a little more than hopeless
    Telling me we're running lonely, loose and broken
    Stronger now on passion but haven't we really spoken
    And all we ever do, is listen to the night talking

    This is my battleground, baby
    This is my plaything
    The only thing I've ever known
    Outside of a wedding ring

    And I swear I heard the night talking
    Cursing me for being a little more than hopeless
    Telling me we're running lonely, loose and broken
    Stronger now on passion but haven't we really spoken
    And all we ever do, oh yeah, is listen to the night talking

    Oh yeah, oh yeah
    And I swear I heard the night talking
    Oh yeah, oh yeah
    I swear, I swear, I swear I heard the night talking
